On June 2, during the 2018 ASCO Annual Meeting, Damon Tweedy, MD, will speak to attendees about his bestselling memoir, Black Man in a White Coat, which explores the intersection between race and medicine through personal experience and reflection.
With more than 35,000 oncology professionals from around the world gathering to discuss state-of-the-art treatment modalities, new therapies, and ongoing controversies in the field, the ASCO Annual Meeting is an unparalleled opportunity for attendees to advance their work through networking.
Stephen A. Cannistra, MD, FASCO, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Clinical Oncology (JCO) and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, will speak about “The Peer-Review Process and Writing an Outstanding Manuscript."
Participants in this year-long program learn valuable leadership skills, network with and receive mentorship from ASCO leaders, gain exposure to U.S. government research agencies, and receive first-hand advocacy experience on Capitol Hill.
Radiation oncologists stand to benefit a great deal from research presented at the Annual Meeting. To maximize the utility of sessions for these oncology professionals, the ASCO University Editorial Board developed an online course for them.
